Charli XCX, who recently won the Visionary Award at the 2023 Ivor Novello Awards, says that her 1975 drummer and lyricist boyfriend, George Daniel, has inspired her to slow down and appreciate the tunes she has made rather than try to drop several albums a year.

Talking to The Sun, she said, “Now that I’m in a relationship with another musician he’s influenced me a lot with his process and how he and his band work. It’s really different to how I work and that has definitely influenced me and my process. I used to be very, ‘Quick, quick, quick, album a month, let’s go’. Now I’m like, ‘Oh, maybe it’s cool to take some time and live in the music that you create.’ My process is definitely evolving.”

The 30-year-old further said, “I’ve always been very much a spontaneous, go in the room and see what happens type of songwriter and I’ve never really cared to prep or think about what I want to say. But actually, my process has completely changed and I’m thinking a lot more about being hyper-specific, especially with my lyrical content.”

Charli and George have been dating since May 2022.
